Section 2.3 says:

o  A 32-bit block count parameter, treated as a 32-bit little-endian integer.

It should say:

o  A 32-bit block count parameter, treated as a 32-bit integer.

Notes:

The block count is not used as a little-endian integer. An example of this can be seen in the example test vector in section 2.3.2, where Block Count = 1, but the block count word of the initial state is 00000001.
